La Misión translates to “The Mission” and makes the number of blends from the company five. La Misión tells the story of Providencia Cigars Founder Jim Faber’s “mission” to Honduras which started as a professional soccer player and turned into a mission to organize youth soccer camps to get boys and girls off the street in a gang littered environment.
Jim Faber comments ,“I never imagined that a short term mission trip to Honduras would turn into 15+ years of my life living and working with some of the most amazing people in the world. “La Misión ” (the mission) is a tribute to the all the hard work and sacrifice that so many people made over those years. I was just honored to be a small spoke in the wheel in God’s vast and eternal plan.”
La Misión comes in one vitola a 7.5 x 38 lancero finished with a traditional pig tail cap. The multi-country blend of La Misión uses Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers, sweet Indonesian binder, and a Honduran Habano wrapper. As with all cigars produced by Providencia Cigars, the Honduran leaf used in La Misión is planted, grown, and harvested by Providencia Cigars on a private farm in Honduras. Medium to full in strength, the La Misión blend offers a balanced profile of pepper, cocoa, and spice with an undernote of caramel sweetness.
La Misión comes packaged in 10 – count cedar boxes and bundles of 11 with an MSRP of $9.99 per cigar/ $99.90 per box/bundle. Current production is limited to 1,050 cigars.
La Misión is rolled at the La Pequena Vega Cigar Factory in Danli, Honduras. Providencia Cigars will be taking orders and shipping La Misión starting this week. Artwork for the La Misión was done by JT Design Studio who designed the cigar bands as well as the inner box lids.
